“‘The World’s Fastest Indian’ is a movie about an old coot and his motorcycle, yes, but it is also about a kind of heroism that has gone out of style. Burt Munro is a codger in his 60s who lives in Invercargill, New Zealand, takes nitro pills for his heart condition, and has spent years tinkering with a 1920 Indian motorcycle. His neighbors wish he would take a break once in a while to mow the grass. By 1967, Burt thinks the Indian may be about ready to travel to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and take part in the annual Speed Week. This project involves fund-raising in Invercargill, and a long journey that takes him overland in America, where he meets among others an accommodating widow who takes him to visit her husband’s grave. In Bonneville, where millionaire drivers are sponsored by big corporations, no one has ever seen anyone like Burt or anything like his ancient machine … This is one of Anthony Hopkins’ most endearing, least showy performances. ” – Roger Ebert Rated PG-13 (for brief language, drug use and a sexual reference).CAPOTE Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Chris Cooper On Nov. 15, 1959, the brutal murder of a family in a small Kansas town sent shockwaves through the nation – and captured the attention of one of the most distinctive minds of our time.
